Good Book

I liked this book a lot. Listened to it a second time when they just re-released it a few days ago and I thought it was a new Shalini Boland book. I thought it sounded familiar, but I listen to and read lots of books and it showed I didn't not own the title and that it is brand new, so I bought it and sure enough, same book, just a different picture on the front. So I finished listening again and it played better to me the first time, but still liked it. I returned the book and then again I owned no copies of the book. Contacted Audible and now I do have the 2nd copy and money back for first one. I don't like when they act like it's a new book when it isn't though.

CHECK BEFORE YOU BUY!!

This is the second time that this has happened to me. They announce a new book by your favorite author, put a new narrator and a fancy new cover but it’s not new! I already had this book in my library. Different cover and narrator. Now I can’t get a refund because I paid actual money for it and didn’t use a credit. I didn’t pay attention and that was my fault but it should be wrong for them to do this. This is a good book and I love The author and narrator. It was better than the first but I’m livid that I was tricked into buying a “new” version of the same book.

Love her writing style

I can’t stop listening. Her books are always engaging, thrilling and twists to keep you guessing. My favorite writer.

Incredibly predictable

I was hoping for something better from this author, but instead this is a story that's been done at least a dozen times already. Not only that, but the main character is predictably very weak. Throw in a bit of animal cruelty and walaah, you've got one lousy read. Save your credit.

So predictable!

I typically love this author, but this book was completely predictable. It started slow and finished exactly as you would expect.

Not so great

I really like this author but this story, not so much. The main character was an idiot, One of those women that needs to tell someone something but doesnt outright say it so it causes all kinds of unecessary problems.

Very predictable, not the author's best.

A trifle farfetched, I've read all of Shalini Boland's books and this one just didn't resonate with me. I also found a couple of indiscretions, which bugged me. Hence the 3/5 review.

could have ended sooner than it did

I absolutely hate returning books - and I'm a huge fan of Shaleni's books, but I found this one to be a little bit too long (hence the reason for not giving it five stars) Katie Villa was brilliant at narrating as usual, but I just felt the end was drawn out. It kind of felt like when you write an essay and there's a word count, so you just write anything to reach the right number. I'll certainly keep listening to Shaleni's books, as I know she's an amazing writer, this book just wasn't one I enjoyed the most.

Hmm rather implausible

Anna was a little annoying, also found myself muttering why didn’t you just call the police! So too implausible in parts to score highly but still a great pace and well narrated.

A bit far fetched

I love Shalini’s books as they are fast paced with a decent story and easy to follow plot. This book was no exception but I did feel it was a bit far fetched.
Beautifully read by Katie I did finish it but felt it lacked the draw dropping twist like most of her books

Anna is not likable

I don't know why the main character is written in such a pitiful way, she's just not likable. Useless with no character, the kind of woman you shake your head at, just spineless!

Predictable

I had high hopes but this is like every other “thriller” and I knew the ending a few chapters in. Even the twists were obvious well before they appeared.

A Terrible Read

One of the worst written books I have ever experienced. Also badly read. Weak unlikeable characters and predictable plot. Don’t waste your time too many other beautiful books to listen to.

An enjoyable read

I enjoyed this book, a couple of plot twists that I didn't expect and the narration was good. A little unbelievable and far fetched at times which I can't mention because of spoilers.

Good story, but

This was a good story and held my attention, but it was just a little too far fetched. No real person in the situation would do what the main character does.

Would I listen to another from this author? Maybe.

Couldn’t finish it

Story had a great start, but just became cringeworthy half way through. Characters just came across as whiny and the storyline increasingly far fetched. Couldn’t finish it. Performances ok.
